Ólafía Þórunn finished T-26 in the Pure Silk Bahamas LPGA Classic

Iceland´s Ólafía Þórunn Kristíndóttir had a great finish on the first LPGA-tournament of 2018, The Pure Silk Bahamans LPGA Classic.

The tournament took place on January 25th-28th on the Ocean golfcourse in Nassau, Bahamas.

Ólafía Þórunn finished the last 6 holes which were left of her 2nd round, 4 under par and then finished the 3rd round 5 under par, 68 strokes.

All in all Ólafía Þórunn finished the Pure Silk tournament with a total of 1 under par, 218 strokes (77 73 68) and had a shared 26th place along with: Sweden´s Pernilla Lindberg, Mirim Lee from South-Korea and Solheim Cup players Charley Hull from Team Europe and Ryann O´Toole from Team US.

Ólafía Þórunn’s game continued to improve as the tournament progressed, in line with the improvement of weather, but there were strong winds in Nassau, this year so the tournament was shortened to a 54-hole tournament.

Last year the Pure Silk was Ólafía Þórunn´s first tournament on the LPGA and she made the cut and finished T-69.

This year she played so much better, despite windy weather.

For her good result Ólafía Þórunn got a paycheck of $11,907.00.

Ólafía Þórunn´s teammate and friend from Wake Forest, Cheyenne Woods finished T-49, with a score of 2 over par, 221 strokes (79 72 70).
